Big well done to Geoff Watts, our Head of Operations and Finance, and lovely partner Helen Aitchison, for completing the Windsor Half Marathon in gruelling conditions.
They raised £500 from family and friends and K J Smith Solicitors matched this with £500, so in total raising £1,000 for Daisy's Dream.
When asked for a quote from Geoff he replied:
"Times weren’t great – me 2:10, Helen: 2:29 but I can honestly say I found it harder than any I’ve done before. I was absolutely hanging at the end – felt like I did after my first ever half. Combination of the heat (was very hot) and my lack of fitness. And a hell of a lot hillier than I remember when did it before. Did it in 1.50 last time. Personal worsts for both of us!"
When asked for a quote from Dave Pickup and Kerry Smith they both said:
"We just think he is showing is age!!!!!"
